Let Me Tell You ‘Bout….

The birds…

  • Hummingbirds.  Mr. Fifty Shades installed a couple hummingbird feeders and we get to see them outside our kitchen windows.  We get to watch them fly in and grab some nectar while we’re eating.  When they first started appearing, I would say, “There’s a little hummingbird.”  But, as they are all “little,” I have revised my commentary.  🙂

Here is the bluebird house we built last year – but, instead of bluebirds, a tree swallow family moved in….you can see one peeking out from the house…20150510_115549 20150510_115542

They have almost neon blue feathers and they are beautiful – but, watch out!  Mom & Pop keep a close eye on their home and will dive bomb those who venture too close.

…and the bees


Our five bee hives remain healthy and active.  We hope to harvest honey later this summer.

….and the flowers


We haven’t planted any flowers (yet), but, the wildflowers du jour are the Black Eyed Susans – they are all over the place!

…and the trees


Our first winter here we planted twelve apple trees.  We’ve had no fruit yet until this year.  At last, success!  Yep, you are looking at the one and only apple.  We sure hope it’s good!

Until next time,

  1. Is one apple enough to make an apple tartlet? Or, will you just chomp into it? Have missed hearing from the farmer and his wife. Glad to hear all is going well up there.. 🙂

  2. Hi, Glad to get your post. I lost your email, and I would like to write to you. Can you send it to me, and I’ll tell you about our adventures.
